|Judul||:||Using SWAG in Teaching Writing to Motivate Students to Write|
Motivating students to write is as hard as asking them to read as both of the skills are kinds of boring activities for them. Many students also enjoy speaking more rather than writing because in writing they have to be more accurate and mostly people will not tolerate mistakes in written language. Therefore, a teacher needs to design various kinds of techniques to make the students comfortable and enthusiastic in writing. Pictures and pictures technique in cooperative learning was used in this study, with the steps called SWAG, standing for Scrambling the series of pictures, Writing the paragraph, Asking the reasons, and Giving feedback. This study was conducted in the 7th grade in the topic of descriptive, narrative and recount texts. Data were collected from class observations, students’ interview, and students’ tasks on writing. The study ended with the result that applying SWAG motivates students to write.
